DNA – Glennis’ Paternal Search – Part 7

Following Morgan/Morgan/Morgan/Davis

By Don Taylor

In the search to find the biological father of my sister Glennis, I am continuing to develop a tree of the descendants of Francis and Fannie (McGregor) Morgan of Pleasants County, West Virginia.

Francis and Fannie had 12 children

Lewis V. P. Morgan was born 30 December 1871 in Lafayette, West Virginia.  He was the third child of Francis Marion and Fannie R. (McGregor) Morgan.

He married Maude L. Lamp in 1899 in Tyler County, West Virginia. They had two children.

  1. Lula Edna Morgan, was born in 1900 & died in 1902 at the age of 2 due to a fire.
  2. Opal Jean Morgan, was born in 1902 in Pleasants County, West Virginia. Opal married William Henry Davis in 1920. They had two girls and appear to have had no sons.

Lewis’s wife died in 1908 and he never remarried.

  • During the 1910 Census Lewis was living with his sister Rosa and her husband, F. M. May.
  • During the 1920 Census, Lewis was living with his mother-in-law, Sarah L Lany.
  • During the 1930 Census, Lewis was living with his uncle, Elie H. Morgan.

It does not appear that the descendants of Lewis V.P. Morgan could be potential candidates for Glennis’ biological father.
